blood in the water here when it comes to obama care but it doesn't seem as if the rnc republicans have ever really taken the foot off the gas about obama care. so isn't this just more to be expected? >> well, sure. the glitches show the administration has clearly made mistakes with the rollout of this health care portal but they don't have a loyal opposition to work with. in a two-party adversarial system, the opposition party has a role to play in providing oversight, but congressional republicans are more interested in scoring cheap political points and attempting to sabotage the law rather than providing accountability. you know, we've had three years of oversight hearings on obama care, but they have been focused on irs conspiracy theories, on birth control. they have done almost nothing to ask questions on how to improve the rollout of this health care portal, and if they had asked questions about the portal and improving it in the last three years rather than starting today, maybe we'd be in a better place. >> i think congressman ryan's question that we led our segment with facil

convened this meeting because of the crisis that we recently experienced the standoff of president obama and congressional republicans. in a number of questions emerged from that crisis include, but not limited to the future of the republican party itself, the impact on america's image abroad, and what it implies for the duration of president obama's presidency. to answer questions or attempt to address them, we've assembled a distinguished panel here today including david keen, the former chairman of the american conservative union and the current opinion editor of the washington times. david is a veteran, political observer, and has participated in republican party politics for several decades. to the immediate right is the grover m. herman fellow in federal best of my knowledge tear -- budgetary affairs, row institute for economic studies, the heritage foundation, and she will address some of the economic implications of the process. to my left is president of the center of the national interest, the parent organization of the national interest magazine, and he'll talk about implicati

party republicans stood up to president obama just in these last few weeks. >> you are getting pushback from the christie camp that he was playing politics immediately after the superstorm sandy hit jersey. >> they are sense totive to that, even a year later. they are going to point out what christie said earlier this year. in the first days and hours after the storm, politics never crept into his thinking. he said -- look at it this way. most of his residents were without power and no schools were open. only 51 gas stations were operational and he had to do what he could to help the people of that state and that men working with president obama in though first hours. christie says politics never crept into it but, of course, in the year since then they certainly have. he used that to his advantage politically and is good at that. >> he is an excellent politic n politician. here is a look at other top stories we are monday orring now in the situation room. just in, "washington post" reporting redskins owner daniel snyder has told the nfl commissioner he will not change his team's name.
media has basically been an attack. is that as the tough questions. seconds, bluntly, the republicans are worse than obama. that is what he is counting on. he goes after them, but was down. so far that strategy has paid dividends. lou: worse than in what context? >> devices, polarizing, fewer solutions, study is done less so for the future. lou: of sorry. i am looking for ideas. obamacare was the big idea. mitch mcconnell. i promise you that i was anyone thinking of it. then again, i have been waiting so expectedly for three and a half years for obamacare to be here, and is. what is here is disaster. we are going to see why, because you introduce the idea. who would like to take up with this panel and therefore we will why the national liberal media seems to think that president obama, despite all of the severance knows more than george w. bush knew and why is and the national media laughing as it did at mr. bush, why not laugh at mr. obama? who will take that up with the panel on become my back. stay with u tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 trading inspires your life. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 life in
the entire law. today republican leaders made that clear. >> you know, the problem with obama care isn't just the website. it's the whole law. >> and the bottom line is the problems with obama care run deeper than just the website. >> hear that? this isn't about the website glitches. it's about scrapping the whole thing. never mind that 17 million children with pre-existing conditions are now covered. never mind that insurance premiums are 16% lower than expected. the gop wants all this to wither on the vine. and they're offering no alternatives of their own. and today democratic congressman bill pasquel called them out on it. >> including the one i'm the coo sponsor of. >> are you serious what you just said? are you really serious? after what we have gone through and what we have gone through in the last three and a half years. you can sit there and say that you had a legitimate alternative after these years? we've gone through 44 votes, 48 votes now, of you trying to dismantle the legislation. you call that cooperation? i don't. >> wow. that's an amazing moment. this law is important. it's
your tweets and posts. house republicans demanding answers about the obama care web site and a subpoena is going out o. house oversight chair darrell issa is here to talk about that next. test test >>> okay. let's go off the record for just a minute. now, this is not about whether you are for or against obama care. this is about reality. about getting the money to fund obama ha care. where are we getting it. obama care for the nation ♪ free. we had to find the money but where? shear who the obama administration is banking on, the young and the healthy. president obama believes the old and healthy will finance old. young people typically don't have much medical care. they are young. the hope is that the young fill the obama care covers and take that money to use to pay the big medical bills of the older and the sick. can we counted on the young? will they do this for us? what do you think in the the white house is hoping the young will make up 40% of the new enrollees in the health care exchanges, but getting that many people to sign up, well, i don't think that's so easy. right now th
they did not have -- help the republicans? just like vladimir putin said. he did not understand what obama was doing. he was either ignorant or trying to destroy america. guest: she brings up a great point, the issue i was talking about, so many instances where executive branch agencies have screwed up. i can assure you that if the irs had the oversight of the nsa, that would not have happened. if they are so distrusting of governments, we have to fight that. people want to paint our government with the same brush, she is exactly right, there was some abuse of power over there at the irs and we have continued to investigate that. it is against that backdrop we are trying to defend programs that are important for this country, defense, and national security. that is the tough battle i have got. we are trying to find some things to do to help with respect to the intelligence we beingthering where it is properly overseen, gathered, and watched like a hawk. host: congressman, thank you for coming to talk to our viewers. guest: greta, thank you for having me on. i did not mean to pitch myself.
not nonpartisan, according to the conservatives. this has republicans scared out of their minds. they don't know what to do. krauthammer laid down the battle lines this morning. he said if obama care fails, liberalism will be set back a generation. >> the irony is that his signature achievement, obama care, is the test of this new liberalism, and today it hangs in the balance of a website or a promise here and there, so there's kind of a practical reality check on his ambitions. if he does not succeed with obama care, the cause of the kind of expansive liberalism, the kind of entitlement state he has been looking for, i think will be set back a full generation. >> this is not about entitlements. this is about excess. this is about people being denied. and this new liberalism that's out there. heck, i thought kennedy had a pretty good dose of how he wanted to take this country in the right direction. and now president obama, i guess you could say, generationally speaking is taking us to round two. what are they afraid of? they are afraid that this is going to be so popular, and that they are on t
is the political fallout? >> thankfully, ted cruz has branded the republican party as the anti-obama care party. that's going to help us next year. i would recommend the if this proceeds as it looks like it is going to where the democrats have to ask for a delay now, exactly what they shut the government down for, lo those weeks ago, ted cruz and mike lee and the house republicans should do the same thing to a delay bill. attach the defund. now it's not a question of shutting down the government. now it's not a question of the debt ceiling. they can't get it up and running. they have to pass a delay bill. >> there is almost an open warfare against good conservatives. in utah they are going to primary mike lee. if they do -- >> oh! >> you didn't hear? >> no. >> establishment guys are targeting tea party members. >> the one thing you are supposed to depend on the establishment as we refer to it they are supposed to not primary our own guys. usually they are upset about the establishment type and the party apparatus says, no, no don't waste timen on this. we'll keep them. >> if they do though that
of now conservative republican friends who are calling me and saying, here's the ironic thing. i'm going to benefit from obama care. i'm glad they are. but i just thought that maybe all of them would be put in a pool with me instead of the pool expanding where all the healthy people, you know, kind of went into a higher premium pool. because then to me it is not affordable. it is available but not affordab affordable. >> our thanks to sue klinkhamer for telling us her story. >>> just keep quiet. that's the advice by one republican. taking shots at the majority leader in the senate. which republican senator is so fed up with harry reid he called him a name i can't even repeat here. y time, which is great...what? he's using you. he probably has a citi thankyou card and gets 2x the points at restaurants. so he's just racking up points with me. some people... ugh! no, i've got it. the citi thankyou preferred card. now earn 2x the points on dining out and entertainment, with no annual apply, go to ♪ (train horn) vo: wherever our trains go, the economy comes to
obama care passed, nobody envisioned that 30 some odd republican governors would refuse medicaid. rsh let's listen to what jay karney had to say about this today. >> what everybody said all along is there will be changes brought about to create minimum standards. min numb services that everyone has to provide. there are existing health care plans that don't meet the minimum standards and therefore do not qualify for the affordable care ak. >> he is talking about one of the controversial aspects of the law as it's working now which is republicans say that people are being kicked off of their health plans. in fact, what's going on is that the health plans are being brought up to standard, up to grade where they will provide a greater value. >> right. we went through this. we did a lot and have done a lot of obama care. we did it about 20 years ago. we have gone through this. there is resistance because people like what they have but the truth is a lot of what people have had in the individual market which was really a disaster before obama care was inferior stuff. i used to have patient

obama doesn't halt the deportations and every day the house republicans don't act on this bill. so, i think americans have tuned in to that. i think americans understand the crisis that our community is faced with every day, and they tie that to the inaction. i mean, but republicans have now this track where they have to first fail at something to then realize that it's political suicide for them to continue on that destructive path. >> that's a good point, and that is exactly the dynamic that had to happen with the shutdown, and hopefully, i hope that you're right, that enough failure will convince john boehner to do the thing he did with the shutdown, the thing he did with sandy recovery, which is bring it to a vote. lorella praeli from the united dream network, thank you so much. >> the story in california where hundreds of thousands of middle class americans are finding sticker shock. >> the president has some credibility problems, too, because he goes out and says these things that have right from the get-go been untrue, and he knew they were untrue. >> that was karl rove on fox
republican leaders? that's an embarrassment for the obama administration. they say they're calling for a review of the nation's spy programs. it's perhaps one of the only things that the white house and the gop leadership can agree on these days. >> have a listen now to house speaker john boehner. he was talking just moments ago. >> i don't think there's any question that there needs to be review. there ought to be review. and it ought to be thorough. we've got obligations to the american people to keep them safe. we've got obligations to our allies around the world. but having said that, we've got to find the right balance here. and clearly, there's -- we're imbalanced as we stand here. >> and john boehner seeming to echo president obama there. interesting to note, this is coming out, all this condemnation and calls for reviews after it was revealed that foreign leaders were potentially spied on, not the millions of spanish or civilian enordinary citizens the gathering of their metadata. it's interesting that this was the impetus and not what was revealed before. >> a bit annoyed.
's cofounded the largest targeted news service and developed the telecommunications policy. president obama nominated tom wheeler as well as republican michael o'reilly to fill two vacant seats on the f.c.c. so what's stopping us from filling these vacancies with a bipartisan pair of nominees? listen to this. the senator from texas stalled the nomination because he owe boazs legislation proposed by democrats in congress that would require shadowy groups that spend millions on political advertising to disclose their donors. this next one is really a doozie , mr. president. the united states secretary of finance, treasury, i'm sorry, other countries it's called secretary of -- or minister of finance. extremely important job. this man is qualified. he's run the office of management and budget, he's been the present chief of staff, he's now secretary of treasury and what a fine, fine man jack lew. jack lew even though he is the secretary of treasury of this great country, he can't go to meetings that other finance ministers from around the world can go. why? because republicans are holding up h
